Baby Potatoes with Spinach ( Parsi Dish)

I had this dish at a Parsi restaurant in Bangalore ( Daddy's Deli ) and loved it and decided to try it at home . It tasted quite like the one we ate.  This is how I went about it -


500 gms - Baby Potatoes ( also called Potato sprouts)
500 gms - Green spinach ( cut finely)
Red Chilli Powder - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1
Salt - to Taste
Oil - Cooking (1 Tbsp)
Mustard & Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp each
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp

Boil the Baby potatoes, de-veil it and cut into 2. Cut Onion finely.
Splutter the mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Add the Onion and stir on low fire for about 3 mins. Add chilli powder, salt &  turmeric. Add spinach and stir for another 2 mins before adding the cut potatoes. Stir well till the spinach is well cooked.
Once the potatoes are boiled, it can be made pretty easily ( especially on work week days ) and serves as a good side dish along with roti's or even rice.
